International Week 2019 – Applications Open for International Staff


Erasmus New Programme Generation: Challenges & Innovations 



Hands on deck! The International Week of the Polytechnic of Leiria (Portugal) it’s just around the corner!


We are proud to invite all Erasmus partners to attend our international week that will be held between 6 and 10 May 2019 and will give the opportunity to get to know the unique educational atmosphere lived at the Polytechnic of Leiria in a warm and multicultural environment!

We really hope that the excellent strategic location of the Polytechnic of Leiria in Portugal and in the Region (The Coastal Centre of Portugal), and the sunny weather in May will convince you to visit us.

This year, the academic community is once again planning receptions, cultural events, a networking fair, and some sightseeing tours to highlight the Institution and our region internationally. This event will definitely pinpoint once more the Polytechnic of Leiria as a promoter of global conversation, and as a builder of an exceptional international community. In just a few years spanning our five-campi and creating a space where we can discuss different perspectives of creating a comprehensive space!

We will promote some discussion moments around the Erasmus 2021/2027 Programme and organize a small exhibition of all visitors where each partner can promote their institution and enhance collaboration. It is part of our commitment to have meaningful internationalization, as well as giving our guests the chance to visit the Polytechnic of Leiria and explore potential link-ups. It is an excellent opportunity to network and discover future opportunities for further projects, research and more ways to keep connected!
